Writings and observations

The church page

Drawing your attention to our latest page, “At the churches,” a list of major churches around the Pacific Northwest – primarily those called megachurches.

The idea is not that they’re politically active (though some do have roles that relate to politics in various ways). More, the idea is that these churches are major contributors of ideas in our society, developers of world views that in turn come to influence voting patterns and political activity, even if only very indirectly. We’ve been quietly watching activity in this area for a while; in the weeks and months to come, you’ll see somewhat more posts here on this subject. Consider this page an opening of marking of territory of interest.

    I noticed there are no Mormon churches listed. Do you count any Mormon churches and their political views? Might be relevant information.

  2. Certainly do count them, but not listed in this first pass – I decided to start with the largest single churches in the region, and LDS wards are usually smaller in size. Suggestions about putting commentary from LDS sources into the mix will be more than welcome.

    I think they have,”Stakes” that are a group of several wards and,”Regions” that are groups of several Stakes and are organized accordingly. Unlike most other churches they adhere to strict geographic boundary’s in organizational functions and are therefore not as autonomous as other churches.
